I'm sure some of you may have heard the news already. Katz Broadcasting signed a major deal with Nexstar Broadcasting, Mission Broadcasting and White Knight Broadcasting for Bounce TV, Laff, Grit and Escape.

At the moment, Ramar Communications has Laff and Escape on KMYL-LD, Raycom Media has Grit on KCBD-DT and DTV America has Bounce TV on KNKC-LD. I'm guessing when the contracts expire these will move over to KLBK and KAMC.

Nothing has been said at work about us picking up these digital networks. I'll talk with the engineers and see what I can find out.

Here is more on the deal: http://www.broadcastingcable.com/new...markets/157330

Our chief engineer gave everyone a brief update during our recent employee meeting. He said equipment is on the way so we can add a .2 and .3 channel to the KLBK and KAMC signals. He said we're getting Bounce TV back, along with Laff, Grit and Escape. The plan is for them to be up and running around September 1. There was no mention as to which channel is getting which digital network.

Now the question is what will be happening to the KCBD 11.3, KMYL 14.2 & 14.3 and KNKC 29.5 channels? It would be nice to see Antenna TV, Cozi TV, Decades or Comet show up in Lubbock.

Thx for the update! I agree with your choice of new additions as well! I've watched them in other markets and would like to see them in Lubbock!

I'm not sure if anyone has ever mentioned this before on here but the FETV channel on AT&T Uverse (578) and on Dish Network (82) simulcasts a good bit of Cozi TV during the day.

I'd rather have our own affiliate here in Lubbock though.

The last update was the diginets should be up by September 1, if not sooner. I still don't know if we're getting all four of them or just certain ones.

Our next monthly staff meeting is this afternoon. Hopefully the chief engineer will give us an update and I'll have more to share.

The diginets should be up on KAMC and KLBK on September 1, maybe a bit sooner. The general manager said we're getting all four diginets. Two will go on KLBK and two on KAMC. There was no mention as to which diginets are going on which station. We'll all have to wait and see.

The KAMC and KLBK diginets are up as of 8:00 Friday evening. Unless any changes are made here is the lineup so far:

13.1 CBS
13.2 Laff

28.1 ABC
28.2 Escape
28.3 Bounce TV

Note:
Ramar still has Laff on 14.2 and Escape on 14.3 as of Friday evening. DTV America still has Bounce TV on 29.5 as well. These may change over the weekend or next week.

Also Grit is still on 11.3 this evening. I'm not sure if Raycom is keeping it or it will show up on 13.3 eventually.
